What is transit?
Transit is a customs procedure that allows carriers to transport goods through the territories of countries that are not directly involved in an international transaction. Therefore, they are exempt from customs and tax duties.
Transit is regulated by international agreements, such as the Convention and the Statute on Freedom of Transit, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea or the Convention on Transit Trade in Landlocked Countries.
In the case of the European Union, there is great freedom in this regard and the lifting of customs barriers for all participants of the Customs Union.
An example of transit may be the transport of goods from Poland to France through the territory of Germany. In this case, Germany will be a transit country.
